What is it about music and food that goes so well together? From IFC's 'Dinner With The Band' to Blue 13's rock 'n' roll dinners to Graham Elliot Bowles' Lollapalooza catering, the two arts have become increasingly intertwined in recent years. Whatever the reason, we've got no complaints about these multi-sensual pairings.
Next on the list: Eat to the Beat, a Sound Opinions-inspired dinner at Blackbird on May 27. The multi-course meal (no menu yet) created by chefs Paul Kahan (Blackbird) and Mindy Segal (Hot Chocolate), with wine pairings from Lush Wine and Spirits, will feature dishes inspired by the Chicago Public Radio show featuring Jim DeRogatis and Greg Kot. Both critics will be in attendance, and you can be there too, for $175 (a portion of proceeds supports Chicago Public Radio). Visit the website to reserve a spot.
